Acclaimed filmmaker Sacha Polak makes her English-language debut in this drama set in South London. It centres on a young mother aiming to rebuild her life following a vicious acid attack which left her seriously injured and with life-changing facial burns. As the impacts of her trauma on family life and relationships make themselves felt, she must dig deep to get her life back. In the lead role, Polak has cast newcomer Vicky Knight, herself a burns survivor. 

With the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ireland.

Sacha Polak's startling new feature is utterly brilliant and Vicky Knight is mesmerising as the woman reclaiming her life.
